Saudi deputy crown prince interview sparks twitter reax
The Economist's interview with Prince Mohammed bin Salman was wide-ranging economic, political and social issues
Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s first on the record print interview with The Economist magazine has made major headlines in the Gulf Arab Kingdom, sparking many Twitter reactions and the transcript of the interview was translated into Arabic.
The interview with Prince Mohammed bin Salman was wide-ranging, encompassing the potential selling of shares in oil giant Aramco, the war in Yemen and the denial that Saudi has any intentions of going into battle with Iran.
“It is something that we do not foresee at all, and whoever is pushing towards that is somebody who is not in their right mind,” The Economist quoted him as saying.
The full transcript of the interview was posted online The Economist’s website and soon after, major newspapers in Saudi Arabia published the Arabic translation version in papers like Okaz, maaal.com and Sabq.
Translation: The interview held beautiful and courageous points and was well articulated by the deputy crown prince, no doubt inherited skills from his father the king.
